Uncle Thomas is Still A Lawn Jockey for the Extreme Right Part 2

"Just as the slavemaster in that day used Tom, the house Negro, to keep the field Negroes in check, the same old slavemaster today has Negroes, who are nothing but modern day uncle toms, keep you and me in check." Malcolm X

Last week, by declaring Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act unconstitutional, the Supreme Court ripped out the heart of the Act. For Uncle Thomas, that was not enough. To prove his loyalty to his right wing sponsors, that sellout went above and beyond the call of duty. In his dissenting opinion, that house negro wrote:

"I join the Court’s opinion in full but write separately to explain that I would find §5 of the Voting Rights Act unconstitutional as well. The Court’s opinion sets forth the reasons."

If Clarence Thomas was a real black man, the Voting Rights Act would still be intact. He is a disgrace. As an African American from Savanna, Georgia who lived during the Jim Crow era, he should know better than anyone why we still need the Voting Rights Act.
